Architecture (selected works)
traditional teahouses (spaces, atmosphere, nature) with western design
with the context: filters, connections, openings.
of spaces, for the different activities and needs inside.
The project started with a precise will: I wanted to recall the traditional Chengdu teahouses, but without copying them. The spaces should have been traditional, but enriched with more elements. Then, I decided that a teahouse was not enough, it was better for me to experiment a different mixed tipology: the teahouse + hostel. But the two tipologies should not have been separated, but strongly connected, with some space in common. The first â€œtraditionalâ€? thing that I wanted to recall with my project was the particular relation that teahouses have with both the context and even the different spaces inside it. So I provided three types of spatial media: filters, openings and connections. The result is a very complicated inner space with many paths and a large variety of areas for different activities. A microcosmos of vibrant and active life.

slow distribution system a way to get up in a calm way while visually exploring things around the building

external court an element taken directly from the chinese tradition. a space that keeps his peace, even if connected with the surrounding space
mini-forest trees at the center of the external court of the teahouse, an element from the tradition
kitchens filter internal court a direct link between the hostel and the teahouse. a space of communication
internal filter a way to improve the intimacy inside the teahouse. the entrance is not direct, but mediated

activator slab NEW SPACES
spaces, to activate the sleeping potential of this site.
in order to contrast the urban void
of functions, for a better “awakening” of the area.
What are the features of the site? And what are the problems that affect the area? First of all we could notice that the area was enclosed in itself. The scarce permeability and the lack of other but residential functions made this site not that comfortable and of course not open to the city. The solution must be opening the area, strenghtening and widening the existing connections with the city, and creating new functions and new public spaces within the neighbourhood. All those things were done throughout a big slab, a volume that contains new functions. The shape of the slab is decided by the features of the site; its limits are the result of the subtraction with each existing building. The slab creates a new kind of space, a sort of ‘passage’ (covered gallery), which is directly linked to the existing residential buildings. The space is multiplied throughout a series of adaptations of the shape: in one case the slab is pulled back to form a square, which is both an invitation to the slab and a green living space in the heart of the neighborhood.
Urban regeneration Turin, Italy Academic project, 2016 Prof. Subhash Mukerjee With: Elisa Sattanino
the project is based on a concentration of different tipologies.
of the space, since less apartments are needed.
every tipology has different features, different details.
How can a monotonous, grey, prefabricated social building of the sixties be transformed into a nowadays architecture? The first data that we used as a reference point was the decrease of the inhabitants of the area. In the Sixties, when the apartments were built, the inhabitants were 15% more than today. This information led to a reduction of the number of the units, from 40 to 32. Than we created new typologies, to differentiate the nature of the units. The differentiation is conjugated through the singular features of each typology. The nature of the apartments is highlighted outside: the cladding is everytime different, but also the type of window and the railing. We wanted this building to become the anthitesis of the previous one.

A terrace located on a restaurant in Tuscany, near Sarzana. The terrace has not been used yet. The project had to be affordable but elegant, had to keep the view and the atmosphere of the sunsets on the mountains near.
